Marmot 24 returns 6-7th August 2016August 2nd, 2016
This coming weekend, it’s the return of Marmot 24 – the only UK up to 24 hour non stop mountain marathon.
For 2016 the Event Centre is the village of Yarrow in the Scottish Borders.
Marmot24™ combines the very best elements of the predominantly British mountain marathon phenomenon with the most exciting aspects of the more international, 24-hour rogaining events. With mountain running and navigation at the heart of the event, competitors have up to 24-hours to visit as many checkpoints as possible on a score format course. Competitors are able to compete solo, in teams of two, or in four-person tag teams.
The Marmot24™ Event Centre is typically right in the heart of the competition area with checkpoints scattered 360° around allowing maximum route choice so that competitors can choose to pass through the event centre during the race, with the solo and two-person teams making the choice whether to rest, or eat, whilst the four-person tag teams can tag-in their team mates; swapping tired runners for fresh runners. The event centre is a hub of activity with a large marquee, race control, catering and camping for competitors and supporters.
